20th Nov 10-12:30pm
Join us for a session of discovering the weird and whacky fungi that are still out after the main fungi season has ended. We will be looking for species that rotting wood, but some of which can be medicinal, such as Turkeytail and Birch Polypore and also looking for fungi that can found on logs like the Beech Jellydisc, Hairy Curtain Crust and many more.
This event will help you understand how fungi work, why they are important, where to look for them and also discuss any species we come across which are edible, medicinal or poisonous.
It is a celebration of fungi, in all there forms, from colourful to drab, big to small and jelly like to wood like, it is an event that will leave you wanting to find more.
Places are limited on our events, this allows for a more relaxed atmosphere and allows David to give you a personal tuition and also follows Covid guidelines.
